The International Academy of Research in Indigenous Management and Organizational Studies aims to bring together leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous management scholars with doctoral students and ‘emerging scholars’ (post-doctoral researchers, and junior faculty members) to engage in discussions and exchange insights.

The event will take place from August 10th to 12th, 2023, at the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa and will be hosted by the Canada Research Chair in Social and Inclusive Entrepreneurship, Dr. Ana Maria Peredo, and in collaboration with Robert Anderson and Peter Moroz (University of Regina), Irene Henriquez (York University), Leo Paul Dana (Dalhousie University) and Rick Colbourne (Carleton University). 

The two-and-a-half-day consortium will feature keynote presentations, panel discussions with prominent Indigenous researchers and emergent scholars, and workshops on research in progress by emergent scholars. We will also have a panel discussion with the community, including Indigenous leaders, and their presence during the event will remind us of Indigenous realities and keep our research relevant.

Indigenous Peoples worldwide are turning to enterprise. This has generated a new and growing field of management studies focused on Indigenous ways of organizing and economic activity. Business and management schools across Canada, the USA, New Zealand, Australia, and elsewhere are engaging in efforts to attract Indigenous students and faculty members and to create Indigenous initiatives. However, the barriers for Indigenous participants in management education and a lack of recognition of what they bring to the economy, organizations, and management fields remain a challenge.

Additional support is needed to prepare a new generation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous management scholars engaged in Indigenous research to be able to embrace both Indigenous and western ways of knowing: what Mi'kmaw Elder Albert Marshall called 'Two-Eyed Seeing.'

The principal investigator and co-applicants bring a strong set of experience, complementary skills, and support networks to realizing an event of this importance.
